All That And A T-shirt!

March 12, 2021

Smack in the middle of Memphis and Nashville right in the heart of West Tennessee you will find Jackson, Tennessee, home of the Andrew Jackson Marathon. Known as Tennessee’s Oldest Marathon, beginning in 1972, the Andrew Jackson Marathon starts and finishes in historic downtown Jackson, April 3, 2021.

Over 120 volunteers are needed to assist with the event.  Need community service hours?  Need to get outside?  Need to see people again?  Did we mention a T-shirt?  Visit 2021 AJM - Andrew Jackson Marathon - Volunteer Registration and select your area of choice!  Click on the “Volunteer now” button and register.  Questions?  Email

The race benefits the Carl Perkins Center for the Prevention of Child Abuse. The course takes runners through the renovated downtown area, beside the University of Memphis Lambuth Campus Arboretum, along tree-lined residential neighborhoods and around the medical center area with challenging hills and great new landscapes.


The course offers a half marathon single loop (13.1 miles) and a full marathon double loop (26.2 miles), which makes for an awesome Boston Marathon Qualifier. Join us on the course and cheer on the runners!
